General definition (in Jainism)Source: Encyclopedia of Jainism: Tattvartha Sutra 8: Bondage of karmas
Darśanamohanīya (दर्शनमोहनीय) refers to “faith deluding (karmas)” and represents one of the two main classifications of Mohanīya, or “deluding (karmas)”, which represents one of the eight types of Prakṛti-bandha (species bondage): one of the four kinds of bondage (bandha) according to the 2nd-century Tattvārthasūtra chapter 8. What is meant by faith deluding karma (darśana-mohnīya)? The karmas which obscures or covers the right belief attribute of the soul is called faith deluding karma.
The three sub types of faith deluding karmas (darśana-mohanīya) are:
- wrong belief (mithyātva),
- mixed wrong and right belief (samyaktva),
- right belief slightly clouded by wrong belief (samyaktvamithyātva).
Jainism is an Indian religion of Dharma whose doctrine revolves around harmlessness (ahimsa) towards every living being. The two major branches (Digambara and Svetambara) of Jainism stimulate self-control (or, shramana, ‘self-reliance’) and spiritual development through a path of peace for the soul to progess to the ultimate goal.
